Show original
Climbing stairs was never more fashionable. This staircase with its 400 steps descends from the Plains of Abraham (Plaines d'Abraham) to the St. Lawrence River (fleuve Saint-Laurent). You always see a lot of people going up and down. It is a training place for lovers of Vertical Running. You can make the way to the Bassin Brown Park and visit the statue of Etienne Paschal Taché.

This is the other starting point, located on Rue Champlain. From here, the effort is greater. The views of the port of Quebec and the St. Lawrence River deserve the effort.

Cap-Blanc Stairs

Stairway to Heaven: Escalier du Cap-Blanc If you're looking to do a bit of training while you're in Quebec City, the Escalier du Cap-Blanc is a great place to do it (and you won't be alone). The staircase—made up of some 398 steps—ascends from the banks of the St. Lawrence to the Plains of Abraham. (Don't worry, there are lookouts built in at regular intervals if you need a breather, or if you just want to take a look at the views.)

Québec: Parc Bassin Brown passerelle

A footbridge has been deployed over the remains of the former Duke of Alba, allowing city dwellers and tourists to fly over the waters and admire the sublime panoramic view of the basin. Located along Champlain Boulevard, next to Notre-Dame-de-la Garde Park, Brown Basin is the place where General Wolfe and his men landed in Quebec in 1759 before the famous Battle of the Plains of Abraham. During its restoration for the 400th anniversary, an imposing footbridge jutting out into the St. Lawrence River was fitted out in addition to the famous “historical interpretation center”, a cycle-pedestrian link and grassy areas.
